Becky Pollino, daughter-in-law, and Jennifer Fish, oldest grandchild, of Judy Pollino show off the winning tickets from their recent benefit activity and encourage others to support the Judy Pollino Memorial Cancer Treatment Fund at the W.C.A. Foundation during Donation Days this year.

Jamestown, New York (Tuesday, October 4, 2011)—Recognizing the need to help local patients who are diagnosed with ovarian cancer, the Pollino family created the Judy Pollino Memorial Cancer Treatment Fund at the W.C.A. Foundation, last year, in tribute to their deceased mother, Judy Pollino.

The Pollino family hosted a benefit event entitled “Angels Among Us” which raised more than $2,000 last year for this endowed cancer care fund which will aid WCA Hospital in the fight against ovarian cancer.

This year, the family instead conducted a benefit give away. On Monday, September 26th, the date of what would have been Judy Pollino’s 70th birthday, Becky Pollino, daughter-in-law, and Jennifer Fish, oldest grandchild, of the late Judy Pollino chose the winners names and awarded first-place $500 and runner-up $100 cash prizes. The Pollino family was then able to donate an additional $650 to the W.C.A. Foundation for the Pollino Fund.

If you would like to contribute to this endowment fund, please contact Brigetta Overcash, W.C.A. Foundation Executive Director, at (716) 664-5461. Tax-deductible donations and memorial gifts can be mailed to W.C.A. Foundation, P.O. Box 214, Jamestown, NY 14702-0214.
